Review
The Reggiane RE.2001 was one of the first Wings of Glory miniatures I acquired as I began to play this wargame and I seriously enjoy any opportunity to take this aircraft for a spin! Do not get lulled into a false sense of security if playing as opposition to this aircraft as it can easily out manoeuver many of the other types which are available for the game: Many a Gloster Gladiator has fallen foul of my ability to use this miniature to the max. This aircraft is compatible with all versions of WGS or the World War 2 versions of Wings of Glory and it's predecessor by Nexus Games. It is not compatible with the World War 1 based WGF games. Reggiane RE.2001s were land based tactical fighter bombers and this aircraft unlike the one found in the WW2 Starter Set does not carry any additional arms (a bomb on the underside.) Widespreadly deployed around 1940 in this guise the RE.2001 also saw service after the air force became the AMI (Please refer to the other version of this aircraft) plus became the basis of the shipboard RE.2002 fighter. Widely underestimated by the Allies as an obsolete push-over of some sort the RE.2001 caused the first big shock which was experienced in the Mediterranean Campaign. The agile and nimble characteristics this aircraft possessed are well reflected in the game and this I feel is important to mention as this demonstrates how well thought out and designed Wings of Glory really is. The game has amazing playability factors which covers Solo Players to groups which is another thing which needs to be emphasised. A sure fire 10 out of 10 and if you can obtain this miniature I would strongly suggest a solo outing in it first to see just what this adds to any Wings of Glory skirmish ...
